People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals posted a tweet a day before Thanksgiving showing a turkey family or more specifically a turkey head-wearing human body preparing to eat another human being for dinner.
PETA tweeted: “POV – A family gathers around your body to share your gratitude.”
The Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy ridicules the post and tweets: “The turkeys need to be destroyed before they rebel against us.”

Chad Felix Greene tweeted: “For an organization that has been so shockingly horrible at their core missions, they’ve created more people who eat meat-eaters than activists. It is admirable their passion for change, arrogance, and self-righteousness every year. ”
PETA published a cartoon showing a turkey in distress. A woman who looks maniacal pours gravy on the bird. The man with the same maniacal expression says, “I can’t WAIT to slurp these juices!” A second character commented, “Mmm… she is so juicy!” ”
PETA shared the cartoon with comments, “And some people still believe Tofurky’s strange.”

PETA had previously this year criticized Elon Musk’s tweets about chocolate milk.
Musk tweeted: “Chocolate milk tastes incredible, just had some. ”
“Drinking cow’s milk is like driving a gas guzzler. The dairy industry is one of the worst contributors to climate catastrophe. What happened to care about the environment? Now chocolate oat milk we can get behind,” PETA responded.

PETA’s website says that it “opposes specialism and a human-supremacist perspective and focuses its attention on the four areas in which the greatest number of animals suffer for the longest: in laboratories, in the food and apparel industries, and in entertainment. “
